Former Super Eagles Captain Nwankwo KANU has dismissed reports of any misunderstanding or beef with Legend and Former Captain of the National team Austin Jay Jay Okocha.


It was reported years ago that the sour relationship between the two Superstars started many years ago after the midfield maestro quit international football.

According to the reports, Kanu who at that time won the FA Cup with Portsmouth FC was selected alongside Austin Okocha to decide who got the ambassadorial honour for Fidelity Bank Plc.

Due to the influence of Kanu among some South East governors, the former Arsenal striker won it and this did not go down well with Jay jay.

The two, according to a very close source, have often avoided each other any time event brings them together.

However, Kanu spoke live through Brila FM on Tuesday morning and told former Teammate Ifeanyi Udeze that there’s no beef at all between the duo.


‘Okocha is my senior brother, Infact our families are very close’


‘Ahbeg o, there’s nothing of such’,


Both Kanu Nwankwo and Austin Okocha Captained the Nigerian National team at a different period.
